Kambi Group now boasts a presence on both US coasts, having agreed to provide its sportsbook solution to a casino operator in Washington State.
Ilani Casino Resort, a venture developed by the Cowlitz Tribe and Salishan-Mohegan, will integrate Kambi’s sportsbook platform.
A planned on-property rollout will permit guests to place wagers as part of a wider investment by Ilani in sports betting.
Kara Fox-LaRose, Ilani’s President and General Manager, reiterated this commitment, commenting: “At Ilani, we are excited to offer sports wagering as a new amenity to meet the varied interests of our valued guests.
“With the level of anticipation and enthusiasm for this amenity, Ilani has invested in a new addition featuring a sportsbook and a new dining experience, The Stadium Sports Bar & Grill, featuring the largest video wall in the region.”
Retail sports betting at tribal locations in Washington went live last year, and to date, several properties have launched sportsbooks.
This includes the Squaxin Island Tribe’s Little Creek Casino and the Suquamish Tribe’s Clearwater Casino, which launched sportsbooks in February.
Meanwhile, the Evergreen State is Kambi’s 19th US jurisdiction, an achievement CEO and Co-Founder Kristian Nylén was keen to comment on.
“We’re very proud to partner with Ilani as this partnership further strengthens Kambi’s strong relationship with tribal gaming and allows us to expand into our 19th US state,” Nylén said.
“Through their popular Ilani property and close proximity to Portland, Oregon, they have built a formidable brand and a large customer base in the Pacific Northwest.”
